Hastings Street is the heart of Noosa Heads, loved for its wonderful mix of beachside luxury and laidback holiday vibes. Resorts, cafes, restaurants, bars and boutiques sit beside gift shops, surf stores, day spas and galleries.

Hastings Street buzzes from coffee carts at sunrise to Champagne brunches, long lunches, sunset cocktails and fairy-lit strolls along the boardwalk to dinner.

Low-rise and bordered by Noosa Main Beach, the Noosa River, Noosa National Park and the Noosa Spit parkland – it's no wonder it was voted the Best Main Street in Australia! And you'll agree!

Our tip
